Radar Theme: Collective Intelligence

[This is part of a series of posts that briefly describe the trends that we’re currently tracking here at O’Reilly]

“None of us is as dumb as all of us,” but the opposite of this profound truth is also true. Systems that channel individual behaviours to create new and valuable data are showing up everywhere. We point to Amazon Recommendations as the canonical example, but it’s hard to find an area that isn’t using individual actions to produce collective wisdom.

Watchlist: Luis von Ahn, Intrade, Robin Hanson, David Pennock, Slashdot Karma.
